Not-So-Wordless Wednesday – 14 September 2016

There are lots of little communities here in Texas, many having not much more than the signs bearing their names.  This little community known as Spanish Camp had a little treasure hiding inside its off-the-main path roads.

I love little frame churches.  There’s just something special about them. There are many of them around here.  I love photographing them.  I am especially glad that I got the above photo of this little church, because the next time we went to photograph it (almost 2 years later), this is what we found:

Off in the distance, just beyond this most depressing pile of ashes, was something that made my heart jump and made me smile.  Through it all, through the fire and the ashes, Love remains.  Can you see it?

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, 

which is, and which was, and which is to come, 

the Almighty.”

Revelation 1:8 KJV

Please be sure to visit David over at Random Thoughts and Observations.

  3. Suzanne, I’m glad you got the picture when you did. It pays to never to an opportunity for granted because you just don’t know what you’ll discover when you go out seeking it again like you did. Oh, yes, I see the love in the ashes! Good capture! Thanks for sharing and linking with me.

    • Thanks, Cathy. I have missed so many opportunities along the way. There was a Jewish temple near us for years and I never got around to photographing it. Now, it is gone, too. Some kids were messing around and set it on fire. David and I were embarking on a project to photograph all of downtown before another hurricane or flood comes through and destroys it, but then he had the strokes. Now, balance and walking are just too difficult and pretty much anything involving either is on hold for now. We do have some pictures of downtown, but not a lot.
      Thanks for hosting the Not-So-Wordless Wednesday. I think it is great! 🙂 Have a blessed day.
